Looking at the colors in the new Spicy Social Soup collection made me realize they would match perfectly with photos from the fair. So I started digging and found some great photos from a trip to the Richwood Fair in 2012- the Spicy Social papers and stamps made for a playful, unexpected and fun combination!
Richwood Fair layout by Patty Folchert
This layout really came together through color, the papers worked so well with these photos and the embellishments and stamps were just icing on the cake. I actually began with a sketch by Scrapbook Generation and started with the pie chart/3 Parts Friends paper mat a little off center. Then I added the border strip using red corrugated paper for texture and the triangles/2 Parts Tweet paper I fussy cut for a fun edge. I cut two banner tipped pieces from the envelopes/Taste of texts paper in slightly different widths as shown and added them to the bottom right cluster. Then I added the top tab “lifeisgood” from a bite size bit. Next I added my two 4x6 photos as shown and then started into the stamping.
First I stamped the “#bestday” in red ink onto white cardstock , then I stamped the crazy cute Instagram looking camera. Next I stamped directly onto two mini journaling placemat frames the first one a “thumbs up” symbol onto the “365” frame. The second one I stamped the envelope in lt. blue ink all over the frame then stamped in red ink the #lovethis sentiment. I added the two frames to the center of the page diagonally after I added a gray grid paper backer to the “365” frame. The camera and #bestday pieces were then added as shown. Another banner tip piece of Orange dots/2 Parts Tweet paper was added next to the camera and then I began to build my title using three different fonts and stickers.
First the tall font alphabean in red for the “Richwood”, then the brand new Beanboard Alpha in red for “Fair” and finally the 2012 in smaller alphabean red. To finish it off I added the little bluebird wooden nickel button, did I mention how much I love these?
There you have it, a county fair layout using a social media collection- who knew? Works for me, might work for you too.
